I have been an educator for 44 years serving as a teacher-coach, principal at the middle school, high school, and central office level. I have been the high school principal at Dallas Can Academy- Oak Cliff campus for the last 6 years. It is indeed a tremendous honor and a privilege to serve as principal at the Oak Cliff campus. I extend a warm welcome to our students, parents, and general public. Through this website it is our intent to familiarize the public with what we offer to our students.
Oak Cliff is a fully accredited, dropout prevention, and open enrollment charter high school. Our campus exceeds the Texas Education Agency’s Yearly Academic Performance Indexes in all areas. Our graduation rate over the last four years has averaged 91%.
Oak Cliff charter high school provides a highly structured, safe, and nurturing environment. Eight advisers monitor student attendance, behavior, and academics. We offer an accelerated curriculum with flexible scheduling that includes a morning and afternoon session. For students that qualify, we offer an evening session as well.
We have high expectations for all of our students. Small student-teacher ratios provide one-on-one instruction allowing students to be actively engaged in the learning process. Furthermore, we use mediated reading across the curriculum allowing students the opportunity to develop their cognitive skills through rigorous and meaningful lessons.
